Aqualung . left this review about The Bowling Green (JD Wetherspoon)

This is an original old Pennine stone pub that is quite small for a JDW and as it's a listed building I suspect they may not have been able to extend it as much as they would have liked. It was packed on my Wednesday afternoon visit which meant I had to retreat to the smokers area. It's been well described below but it's basically an open plan room with a stone floor.
Being a smaller JDW there are only eight hand pumps which had one unused, the two GK beers, a cider, Bradfield Farmers Factory Site & Farmers Northern Soul, Saltaire Blonde and Bridgehouse Cherry Choc Stout. I went for the Cherry Choc Stout (£2.19) which was in good nick.
Despite being so busy I thought this was a good Spoons.

Real Ale Ray left this review about The Bowling Green (JD Wetherspoon)

Nothing really exciting on the selection of eight handpumps on our visit, so we settled for a Lincolnshire Red Ale. The bar area was situated at the back of building and was very poorly lit. It felt as though it had been just shoved there out of the way and was a bit awkward navigating around people. The middle glass roofed section was the part where everyone tended to eat. So the best part of the bar was the traditional front lounge, still it was an awkward place to return to the bar for a replenish, so couldn't wait to move on to a proper pub.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Bowling Green (JD Wetherspoon)

Attractive stone façade, with the comfortably-furnished main building joined by a low glazed atrium with a flagstone floor to smaller ones at the rear (housing the bar) and to one side. Small courtyard to the other side, and a patio beer garden at the front. Eight handpumps, dispensing a decent selection of real ales including three local ones from Saltaire - Pride (£2.05), South Island Pale and New World Red.
